The Joy of Giving

Sermon delivered by: Pastor Harold W. Finch, Sr. on August 14, 2011

Scripture - Philippians 4:14-20 (NIV) **Key Verse: 19

 14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles. 15 Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; 16 for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need. 17 Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account. 18 I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. 19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
 20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Week 13: The Year of Commitment

Joshua 24:15

  • Remember, without tests you will not have testimonies to share with others; trouble does not last always; block the unimportant things!
Key Thought: Worry is the LACK of BELIEF in God!

Sermon delivered by: Pastor Harold W. Finch, Sr. on August 7, 2011

Scripture - Genesis 6:5-8 (NIV)

 5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
  • Evil and sin that goes unchecked brings death and destruction (which is what God saw in His creation). Because of the evil He saw in His creation, he became grieved.
